BATTLE CREEK, MI — This week, the cereal giant Kellogg Company will reopen contract negotiations with its 1,400 cereal plant workers, who have been on strike since October 5.
Negotiations with the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers, and Grain Millers International Union are set to resume Monday, according to Kellogg officials which is based in Battle Creek, Michigan.
The negotiation session will be the first time the two sides have met since the beginning of the month, when they were unable to reach an agreement after two days of bargaining. The strike affects plants in Michigan, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee; which produce all of Kellogg’s cereal brands, including Rice Krispies and Apple Jacks.
